Panasonic's LUMIX 101P brings a 13.2MP camera to Android
First of all, the main selling point on the Panasonic LUMIX 101P is the 13.2MP camera using a CMOS sensor. The 4 inch LCD display offers qHD resolution and under the hood is a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 dual-core 1GHz CPU. The handset has connectivity with the carrier's high-speed data network which runs as high as 21Mbps and offers WCDMA and GSM compatibility. The unit will run on Android 2.3 and has a few interesting little perks like a digital television tuner, an infrared connection and an E-wallet function. And for those who often drop their smartphone into the toilet, the LUMIX 101P is waterproof. Weighing in at 128 grams, the phone's dimensions are 64 mm × 123 mm × 9.8 mm. And yes, there is a microSD slot so that you can expand the storage on the device.
The Panasonic LUMIX 101P will be available in black and pink, but pricing was not revealed. A smartphone like this could really replace your point and shoot camera, allowing you to leave your current camera at home when you go on vacation.
